The Ada’s Team AGM is scheduled for April 14th at 12noon in CSC 3-33. I suspect it will take about an hour but we have the room from 11:30am til 2pm if we want to discuss anything in more detail.
At the AGM we will be electing a new executive for the 2014-2015 year, and passing some constitution amendments.
1) Adding two executive positions:
Vice President of the Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC), and Outreach Director.
2) Altering the duties of our exec:

the Executive Committee. The President acts as the main point of contact for all external
organizations, possesses signing authority on the group bank account, and is the primary

facebook/twitter, and/or blog, tracking membership, organizing planning meetings, taking

3) Altering the definition of Quorum to account for the new exec
Quorum for regular meetings, including the AGM and any meeting where voting occurs is 10% ½ of
all members in good standing. Quorum for executive meetings is ⅔ of the Executive Committee.
So please come by to vote on the constitution changes and the exec!
